The Trinity Church missions team has finalized the dates for our upcoming mission trip to The Joy Center in Big Creek, Kentucky. The Joy Center is an outreach center of the Red Bird Missionary Conference and is about 20 miles from the Red Bird Mission. At that location, the site of the Big Creek United Methodist Church, they provide early childhood education, a food pantry, playground, discount store, and many other things.
We will be departing on Sunday August 27th and will return on Friday or Saturday September 1st or 2nd.
We are still discussing options and potential work projects with The Joy Center but typically these can range from helping to serve meals, to laying new floors, installing a new bathroom for a neighbor in need. We will spend one day on a “field trip” so that everyone can see and experience what goes on at the Red Bird Conference office and the Red Bird mission area.
Volunteers from other churches are welcome to join us. No particular skills are required (our host promises that there is something that almost everyone can do) but being familiar with tools and basic construction might be helpful. Some of our “regular” volunteers are in their eighties, and many are younger, so we’re sure that there is a place for everyone that wants to come along.
